If the project is worked from the bottom up, that means you will need to turn it upside down. This is the fun part. Take your scissors and snip the yarn in the marked row one stitch away from the right side of the work. Carefully undo the yarn from the first stitches at the right side of the work.

When shopping for sweaters to unravel, pull the knit apart to see if you can see holes in-between the strands of yarn.
